Sinofsky drums up Lee docu

After capturing Metallica’s emotional meltdown before a shrink, documaker Bruce Sinofsky will now turn his camera on bad-boy rocker Tommy Lee.

Project, set to begin shooting this spring, is being produced by Sanctuary Music Artists Management CEO Carl Stubner (Lee’s manager), marketing and branding firm the Karacter Group and @Radical.Media. “This is as honest as it gets,” Lee said. “Love it or leave it!”

Sinofsky said there are few characters in the rock world as “colorful as Lee, and not just because of his tattoos.” Project will follow him as interacts with family, friends and business associates.

Lee was the subject of his own NBC summer reality show, “Tommy Lee Goes to College.” He also penned his own memoir, “Tommyland,” which made the New York Times bestseller list. And then there was the sex film featuring him and then-wife Pamela Anderson that was posted on the Internet.

While there are few rock stars with as much exposure as Lee, Sinofsky said there is still plenty of material. In addition to Stubner, producers are Karacter CEO Jenna Barnes and @Radical’s Jon Kamen and Frank Scherma.

Sinofsky’s “Metallica: Some Kind of Monster,” which he directed with producing partner Joe Berlinger, won the 2005 Independent Spirit Award for docu and sold more than 1 million copies. He and Berlinger also co-directed documentary “Brother’s Keeper” and HBO doc “Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills.”
